Tennessee has traded linebacker Akeem Ayers to the New England Patriots in what coach Ken Whisenhunt says gives the linebacker a fresh start.
Whisenhunt said on his radio show Tuesday night the trade probably was the best for both Ayers and the team.
The Titans traded Ayers and their seventh-round draft in 2015 to the Patriots and will receive New England's sixth round draft pick pending a physical, according to multiple reports.
Ayers had been scratched five of seven games this season in Tennessee where the Titans switched to a 3-4 scheme under coordinator Ray Horton. A second-round draft pick in 2011 out of UCLA, Ayers started 44 of 48 games his first three seasons. But he had surgery to repair the patella tendons in both knees this offseason.

The Tennessee Titans have signed running back Antonio Andrews from their practice squad to keep the rookie around.
The Titans announced the move Tuesday.
The 5-foot-10 Andrews was signed as an undrafted free agent in May after playing in 42 games at Western Kentucky where he averaged 161.9 all-purpose yards. As a senior, he ran for a school record 1,730 yards and a career-high 16 touchdowns. He was the Sun Belt Conference's most valuable player and offensive player of the year.
He was cut at the end of the preseason before being signed to the practice squad.

The starting pitchers for Game 2 of the World Series are a study in contrasts.
The Royals will send out rookie right-hander Yordano Ventura, who is from the Dominican Republic, grew up idolizing Pedro Martinez and now talks to him nearly every day.
The Giants will counter with veteran Jake Peavy, the right-handed hired gun who helped Boston win the World Series last year.
Both bring an element of the unknown into their World Series starts.
Ventura struggled in a relief stint during the Royals' wild-card win over Oakland, though he pitched far better in postseason starts against the Angels and Orioles.
Peavy has had trouble against Kansas City throughout his career, especially at Kauffman Stadium.
